Yacoubian Hobbs 2015 Areni Vayots Dzor Armenia
92 points Wine Enthusiast - This deep ruby wine has a nose of pomegranate and white chocolate. Silky tannins provide a rich mouthfeel and offer a backdrop for flavors of black plum, raspberry, anisette and espresso bean that head off into a baking spice finish.
In the village of Rind, the Areni grape thrives in rich volcanic and limestone soils. Hot summers are tempered by cooler temperatures at these high elevation sites, and water is provided by the melting snow caps atop Mount Ararat.
Our Areni wine expresses the unique characteristics of this ancient variety with the focus and purity that modern winemaking techniques provide.
